E2: OBJECT, UNIVERSE & LIFE IN PERFORMANCE
Merlin Puppet Theatre
Monday 8th - Tuesday 9th April 2019
10am - 5pm daily
Ages 18+ / adults
An approach to all three basic elements that contribute to making a complete visual universe - Object, Universe and Life. OBJECT - puppet, mask, shadows; UNIVERSE - scenography, light and sound; LIFE - how these elements become animate. An exploratory laboratory, which examines through analysis, practice and experimentations, how a harmonious puppetry performance is created. Through improvisations and research on stage individually and in groups, participants will work on how to develop and realise an idea, all the way from scratch to the final desirable result. See here for Merlin Puppet Theatre's show at the festival, "Noone's Land".
The OBJECT Project
ACCESS: Live captions. Pixiematosis is the happy/sad tale of tiny extraordinary creatures living in a nocturnal paradise who realise, too late, that they’re being exploited for a sinister purpose. The show features The OBJECT Project’s own brand of sqwonky puppets, odd-automata and charity-shop rejects. Come along, be charmed, be appalled; get swept up in the existential madness of it all.
